The preparatory college (Studienkolleg) offers language courses in German as a foreign language at five levels from beginners to the preparatory course for the DSH. Each course is the basis and prerequisite for the next. The courses last 7 to 8 weeks each and comprise about 175 hours of instruction. The last course ends with the examination of German-language proficiency for the admission of foreign students to university (Deutsche Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugang ausländischer Studienbewerber), the DSH.
